Sway ft Kano - Still Speedin' Remix

With Sway and Kano's well deserved reputations in their game, it was hard not to take for granted that Still Speedin' Remix would be a banger. One of the most respected names in UK rap Sway, returns with the remix to his new single Still Speedin’, which is released on 4th December on 3beat Records. Bringing two of the UK’s finest rap talents together, British rapper Kano is on the track and stars in the decent remix video.

Still Speedin’ has already been named Zane Lowe’s Record Of The Week and made it onto the B-list at BBC 1Xtra. The single samples Loleatta Holloway’s ‘Love Sensation’, which was made famous by Black Box who sampled it on their 1989 number 1 ‘Ride On Time’. Sway goes in on the track with his signature lyrical word-play, demonstrating his prowess with some serious punchlines.

Derek Safo (aka Sway), the Mercury-nominated north London rapper has been a stalwart of the music game since the age of 16 and is credited by peers and critics a-like as a trailblazer in the UK urban scene. His ability to cross over saw Sway beat the cream of international hip hop talent such as 50 Cent and The Game to win MOBO Best Hip Hop in 2005 and he took the crown for Best UK Hip Hop at the 2006 BET Awards. In addition, Sway was the only featured rapper on Lupe Fiasco's Billboard No.1 Album "Lasers".

Still Speedin' is blasted with high-energy power-beats, no messin'! and as if this was not serious enough with Sway, Kano's contribution really completes this track for me.
Sway is also making a cameo appearance in upcoming Channel 4 drama, Top Boy – a four-part drama starring Ashley Walters [So Solid’s Asher D] and Kano.
